The Master and Margarita
Atmospheric and exciting, yet a difficult to follow and rough performance
This article is from 2010.
Staging as dense and convoluted a novel as Bulgakov’s masterpiece in 70 minutes necessitates ellipsis – so much, in this version from Oxford University Dramatic Society, as to make it very difficult to follow. The set is atmospheric and exciting, the idea of using live music and dance to bring this grotesque fable to life admirable, but the execution of the performances is too rough.
